Rekonnect kids camp is 5 days of fun with other kids who have similar experiences.
Kids who have lived all round the world come together in the beautiful Peak District. There is lots of fun, games and laughter. We walk in the countryside, build dens in the woods and follow treasure trails. There is a campfire and a BBQ, football in the large garden, and lots of crafts and games indoors and out.
But we also take time to think about what it is like to say goodbye, to move countries and schools. Kids get an opportunity to reconnect with the UK and with others who ‘get it,’ people who understand the joys and challenges of being a TCK. We use the book of Ruth to see how God is with us through transition and change and to see how we are in good company with God’s people.
There is space to share experiences through our WOW evenings, where each family shares about the country where they have been living. Each morning we divide into smaller groups according to age, to chat at an age appropriate way.
Everyone sleeps in dorms, some bigger and some smaller. Some of our campers are away from home for the first time, and our leaders are great at reading bedtime stories and settling everyone at bedtime. (and making sure that teeth get brushed!)
The leaders are all people who understand TCKs. They are either TCKs themselves, or work with TCKs. They range from enthusiastic young leaders who are up playing football at 7am, to our more mature leaders, trained teachers with years of experience. All the leaders are committed Christians, are fully DBS checked, and choose to volunteer for rekonnect camps because they know how helpful it is in that time of transiton. We are happy to answer any questions you have, please do contact us!
For 2022, rekonnect kids runs from Monday 25th – Friday 29th July
Every year we aim to keep the price of rekonnect as low as possible. For 2022 we anticipate the kids camp will cost £175 per child with a £25 deposit, to be confirmed by November. If it is deemed impractical or impossible to run the camp in person due to Covid-19 restrictions, the cost for the online camp is £25, the same as your deposit. Bookings operate on a first come, first serve basis and are not confirmed until the deposit is received, so book early to avoid disappointment!
January 2022 update:
